Motorsports Venues - NASA Statement On Austin's Circuit Of The Americas Petition Drive
On June 23rd, Austin's City Council will vote on tax issues that will mean the difference between hosting the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix or not. It is very possible Circuit of The Americas will not be built if there does not appear to be enough support for it.
We are hoping to make an online petition go viral: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/supportusgpracing/ Any support you could lend us in terms of posting it on the NASA homepage or forwarding the link via newsletter would be of huge service! Also, Any clout you may have with various VIPs - and by that I'm talking about big names in Indy, NASCAR, and other series - would be of great help if it meant we could get drivers and teams tweeting regularly between now and the 23rd, or even posting it on their respective sites. It's one thing to gain support from within, and another entirely if we can get U.S. racing the fans involved!
The petition was made in conjunction with Circuit of the Americas' media relations firm, Hahn, Texas (http://hahntexas.com/). And believe me when I tell you that it will make a positive impact on the City Council's decision-making process if we are able to collect enough signatures.
